About the book:

This timely book takes a radical and innovative look at Creative Writing, the academys newest success story

Michelene Wandor has written the first history of Creative Writing, analysing its relationship with English, literary studies and cultural theory, and theorising its pedagogy. Erudite and provocative, the book presents a searching critique of Creative Writings aims, its position in higher education, and the methodology of the workshop format in which it is conventionally taught.

Written with wit, intelligence and authority,The Author is not Dead, Merely Somewhere Else argues for a radical reconception of the subject, suggesting inspiring strategies for change.

The book is indispensable reading for teachers and students, as well as all those concerned with the future of literature.
